I have new stamps, yeah! I signed up last month at Technique Tuesday in their Greenhouse Society, in the auto ship program. This gets me the newly released stamp each month at a discount. My first month was a lovely stamp called Bootiful Tulip which I couldn't resist. Who doesn't love rain boots filled with tulips? At the same time, I was able to buy this beautiful stamp "Cosmo" at a discount.
I have grown cosmos in the past and love the soft delicate flowers. I used my Bic markers to color these and love how they turned out. Which brings me to the challenge that inspired me, Addicted to Stamps and their theme of "Make Your Mark", which is to use your choice of coloring medium-markers, pencils, watercolor, etc. to color your image. I have had some success in the past with the Bic markers and since I have been playing quite a bit and experimenting with different coloring mediums and tools lately....why not use the Bic markers?
I loved how this paper that I bought recently just blends wonderfully with the flowers.
I am also going to enter my card at Creative Moments and their challenge #72 - Anything Goes-Monochromatic.
Here you can see how I fussy cut the image and mounted it on the die cut.
Hope you like this card and will check out the blogs above, I love visiting and getting ideas and I am sure you are just like me. Have a great rest of the week.
